S2e Book Of The Week is 'Something Known'

When a young monk escapes his monastery with an all-powerful secret, he implements it on a town whose inhabitants reap the benefits - and hidden disasters - of its potent, but dangerous knowledge. Eli Deo is a young monk who finds himself spending less and less time at his monastery. During most of his days he walks to the forest's edge and thinks about what the world is like beyond his simple life of prayer and aestheticism; he longs to go out and see the vast places beyond the forest and live as a regular person. But there is a problem: Deo belongs to a sacred order - a powerful, yet unknown brotherhood that protects a great secret.
